hey you crazy kids!
me? i just completed periscope no. 5. you can catch it HERE for the next 24 hours.
i felt like getting out my copics and playing around in my fabriano ecoqua sketchbook with the thin crinkly pages.
if the usually inaccurate weather reports are correct, a storm is headed our way. i won’t hold my breath, but the garden could really use a good soak.
i went for my early morning walk at the huntington gardens today. oh it was magnificent. the plum & cherry trees are still blooming. i saw an older gentleman in the chinese garden laying on a bench reading a book under a camelia tree.
i found the mausoleum of henry & arabella huntington today. it’s on a knoll surrounded by orange groves in an out-of-the-way part of the vast grounds. the jefferson memorial in DC was modeled after it. both were designed by john russel pope.
while i was wandering around, an old coyote trotted across my path. i wanted to feed him and brush him and tuck him into a nice dry den. poor dear, he looked hungry and forlorn.
old fashioned victorian box trees are perfuming the air around the mausoleum. the scent is intoxicating. i bet arabella huntington selected them to be planted around she & henry’s final resting place.
here is a sneak peek of the little cottage by the beach that i will be hunkered down in later this month. it’s tiny and surrounded by old trees & houses. i can’t wait to explore the neighborhood on foot.
a page from my big visual journal. earlier this week i drew a few birds while i facetimed with dottie.
the rain has started. i can hear the raindrops pinging off my porch awning. happy saturday night wherever you are. thanks for stopping by…
